The Micropalaeontology Laboratories
- Location: Room OG3, Ground Floor, Kathleen Lonsdale Building
- Telephone Extension: 32413
- Laboratory Managers: Prof Paul Bown
The UCL Micropalaeontology facility specializes in calcareous fossils such as benthic and planktic foraminifera, siliceous fossils such as radiolarians and diatoms and microfossil (conodonts and radiolarians) processing and extraction. These includes sample preparation facilities (a wet lab and fume hood for sample washing and acid digestion); a variety of microscopy and microphotography capabilities; reference collections of microfossil species and an extensive micropalaeontological reference library. We make use of the UCL's Palaeoceanography research facilities.
Facilities include a scanning electron microscope.
The laboratory collaborates with industry and number of universities worldwide. We have a particularly strong research link with the Palaeontology Department at the Natural History Museum in London. Collaborators may work individually or supported by laboratory staff on a cost-sharing basis.
